Omega 8007 Juicer Review: Slow Masticating Juicer (Silver)

The Omega 8007 is a 5th generation masticating juicer that comes with a lot of improvements compared to the juicers of older generations. Let’s figure out what are these improvements.

Overview

Omega 8007 Heavy Duty Masticating Juicer is considered by consumers as one of the best cold press juicer on the market and truly it is. A slow running auger prevents juice oxidation, larger feed chute and screen makes juicing better and easier, and housing became BPA-free. But first things first.

Juice yielded by such method retain all the nutrients and vitamins that a very valuable for our organism as they are responsible for our health conditions. The small quantity of these things in the human body can conduce to a disease with bad circumstances.

Drinking juice yielded with the Omega 8007 has high nutritional value that can prevent many diseases caused by lack of vitamins and are the natural product for a good well-being.

The Omega 8007 features Dual-stage juicing system which means very dry pulp and high yield as the ingredients is crushed down at first and then is chewed additionally to get more yield. The pulp is ejected automatically to the pulp container, hence you don’t need to do anything with it.

The larger funnel assembly and larger juicing screen compared to the older models makes juicing more comfortable and ends up in higher yield respectively. Also the juicing screen now made out of stainless steel which makes it much stronger; other parts of juicing screen are made out of GE Ultem material which is very strong (the auger made out of the same material) and can handle hard fruits and veggies.

A special blank plate comes with this juicer allows you to make thinks like the nut butters, the sauces, grind up cabbages and much more. It is made out of thicker plastic so it’s quite a strong thing. With extra nozzles that comes with the package, you can make other thinks like pasta, baby food, frozen desserts and many more. Basically, purchasing the Omega 8007 you get not only the juicer, but a food processor as well.

Omega 8007 vs 8008

Both Omega 8007 and Omega 8008 are the identical masticating juicers. There are only two differences between them: colour and price.

As the 8007 is silver and 8008 is chromed that makes a difference in prices: the first one costs less than $250 while the second one costs a bit more than $300.

Hence there is no point to pay more unless you want to see chromed juicer in your kitchen.

Omega 8007 vs 8006

There are four main differences between these juicers. All of them are explained below:

  1. Compared to the Omega 8006 the Omega 8007 juicer has larger funnel – width, height and depth were enlarged, hence you can put more things into it.
  2. The juicing screen got the biggest amount of improvements: it became larger (~25%, approximately), the strainer itself now made out of stainless steel and thicker plastic which makes it much stronger than it was before. Extra surface area led to a higher yield of juice, which is a very important quality for every juicer.
  3. The housing is now made out of Eastman trident copolymer which is BPA-free while the plastic housing of the Omega 8006 is made out of polycarbonate. This means you can be sure that your juice won’t be affected by any hazardous chemicals.
  4. The footprint of the Omega 8007 is a bit smaller and this can make a difference if you are short on counter space.

The other differences are too inconspicuous to be mentioned here as they won’t make any differences while juicing.
